I just at the park and I went on cheetah hunt. The onride photo is still not working from the damage it sustained from the trench flooding. Oh and yeah this...

^ That sign is just referring to the original May 1st opening date that was announced as delayed I believe two weeks ago.

Looking at a cartoon drawing of Kumba on the park map is more intense than riding Fahrenheit.

I actually found that ride to be quite underrated. Sure, it's not as intense as the other intamins at the park but it still delivers some great moments of air and the pacing is not so bad either.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Donkeys are my way of life!

It is a good, intense ride (I liken it to the BTR of sit-down coasters in its intensity), but since I tend to be a bit more sensitive to head rattling that wouldn't bother other people, I'm usually a one-and-done on it. If my head weren't so close to the OTSR's where it bounced around between them through basically the whole ride, I think I'd enjoy it a good bit more. And yes, I know it's not like an Arrow where it feels like the OTSR's are trying to punch you in the head because the transitions are so poorly designed, but the rattling still bothers me (and gives me a headache), and at the end of the day I'd rather ride SheiKra or Cheetah Hunt or Montu because I don't have that same problem on those other coasters.


^This. Every time I've visited I've felt the B&M rot. Rattle, rattle.

Kumba without a doubt is on the top of my list of roller coasters. One of the reasons why I love this ride so much is the pacing, it never has a dull moment, even after the MCBR. I don't think I've been on a ride that took inversions the way this ride does, very forceful! The only part of the ride I found a "rattle" was the turn between the interlocking corkscrews, but even then it's nowhere as bad as the Hulk or Dominator.

I just made a donkey in No Limits!

The only one I can think of is Led Zeppelin - The Ride/Time Machine since it's SBNO.

Any update on Falcon's Fury?

The rumor mill says sometime in May. A person from the call center @ SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment said anytime this month, so I'll be waiting. :)

^The people that work in the call center are probably not the best people to go by when it comes to operational updates for Falcon's Fury. Right up there with tram drivers and the Dippin' Dots guy.

Now I'm hearing June 28 for a Falcon's Fury opening date. Hopefully this isn't true.
